I'm looking for a plant to create a privacy fence. What do you recommend?

Using shrubs as a privacy fence is such a fun idea!

Hibiscus shrubs do a great job of screening from spring through fall and fill the garden with flowers in the summer. Most of them mature 5-8' tall. Viburnums are one of my favorite plants. Easy to grow and beautiful flowers and fall foliage. Opening Day Doublefile matures 5-10' x 5-8'. If you are wanting an evergreen, check out Sky High Juniper. Would a narrow tree work? If so, look for Standing Ovation Serviceberry and Parkland Pillar Birch.

Thanks for writing!
